Hello! Thanks for taking the time to visit my profile. My name is Sophie and I am an enthusiastic tutor and university student based in West Ryde.
ABOUT ME & QUALIFICATIONS
I have an infectious passion for English studies and I am more than happy to share my knowledge! I have over three years of tutoring experience under my belt, and I obtained excellent HSC results, scoring 94 in Advanced English (2014) via an accelerated learning program, and scoring 47/50 in extension 1 and 48/50 on my extension 2 major work (2015). I achieved an overall ATAR of 93.25.
Sometimes, the content and expectations of HSC and preliminary English studies can be unclear and dry, but it doesn’t have to be! Engaging students and generating enthusiasm is always a top priority of mine, and I always strive to explain concepts clearly and concisely, in a manner suited to you.
I am known to be energetic and articulate, and I want to guide you in translating your ideas into powerful English pieces! I am familiar with the current HSC curriculum for English studies of all levels, and I am particularly skilled in many areas including:
- essay building and proofreading
- familiarisation of texts
- creative writing
- critical textual analysis
- formatting short responses
- All other components of HSC English!
I am always willing to any read texts being studied, and furthermore I’m more than happy to be in contact with students outside of session times 7 days a week via email or otherwise.
AVAILABILITY, COSTS & LOCATION
I only charge $50 an hour, with the first session totally free of charge. I am also available for group tuition and charge only $25 per person (max 4 per session). I have a car and a valid NSW licence, and am willing to travel to you or to a library near you, however distances further than 20 minutes will incur an extra fee of $10. I would love to accommodate you into my schedule- I am fully available on weekdays (with the exception of Thursdays) and flexible on weekends. Contact me today to get inspired!
